    I refuse to buy anything from Seidio, I have heard many bad reviews from there batteries. I bought a Craddle inno.dock jr and had to return it because instead of charging it would drain the battery. Think twicw before spending 50 bucks for only 400 mah more.

    Would be cheaper to get a car charger and another charger for the office. Got a car charger at wal-mart for $9.

    12 hours and I am at 60%. I roam across an 1100 acre resort with 3 restaurants, 4 kitchens, 2 golf courses, marina, etc. It would not be practical for me to have multiple batteries and chargers. I just need 1 that carries me the day. My days are long and fast paced, no time for bs.

    I am happy now with the 1600 battery.

    Regards

    graylion,

    Are you in a UMTS area all day? Is this WM5 or WM6?

    (I didn't see that you'd mentioned those, sorry if you have).

    Got mine yesterday. I have Tmobile and thus no 3G, but I set it to GSM anyhow.

    Took my phone off the charger at 7am (about 5 hours ago), light internet usage so far, no calls and I'm at 89%.

    I took my phone off the charger around 830am this morning, and 5 hours later I'm at 71% charge. This is with a few SMS, half a dozen emails, and a 10 minute phone call.

    I'm using the 1300mah battery from Seidio so you guys could compare. I'm in a 3G area but inside this building I switch back and forth all day.

    Oh geez I forgot to mention the most important part - I'm using the 1300mah battery from Seidio so you guys could compare. I'm in a 3G area but inside this building I switch back and forth all day.

    Mine arrived today and I'm charging it.

    I go in and out of 3G areas all day, and have WM6. My 1200mAH battery does quite poorly and I find myself having to recharge whenever I am at my desk or in my car.

    Tomorrow morning I will run the 1600 and report back.

    I'm tempted to order one of these, especially for those days when I have those early flights and have my phone off the charger from 4am til 9pm.

    If you want to save a few bucks, you may want to consider buying it from this http://cgi.ebay.com/615-Seidio-1600m...QQcmdZViewItem.

    Seidio did not confirm or deny their affiliation with this eBay seller. I did buy a 2400mAh battery (for 650/700p) from them over a year ago and it still works.

    We're talking about the 1600mAh battery from seidio.....1300 doesn't seem like it would give a significant boost, but 1600 is about 33% bigger than the OEM battery.

    We should also consider coming up with a convention to test the battery. I would suggest forcing 3G mode (on a weekend when you don't really use it) and see how much a 30 minute phone call will drain the battery from a full charge. If you run this several times (assuming your battery's conditioned) it'd give you some good data points to compare with the OEM battery (assuming you did the same thing with the OEM battery). If anyone is willing to do this, that'd be grand. As for myself, I don't feel $50 is worth it unless I know it is a significant boost in battery life, which is why I'm waiting.

    I put mine in at 8:30 a.m. Been 90 minutes with it. 15 minutes of phone calls. 4 text messages sent. Some web browsing for around 15 minutes.

    Set to Auto for GSM/UMTS and I go in and out of 3G.
